A PS1 emulator for Windows sold in stores during the console’s heyday. Seriously. Whether or not you think Bleem LLC was genius or insane, it’s quite the odd software relic!

    I’ve got this still! This was quite amazing for it’s time. The compatibility was not actually very good (they focused on doing a few titles well rather than many titles okay), but what made it amazing was they method of reverse engineering – they didn’t use a BIOS like all other emulators, and this is why they did so well in the court case against Sony I guess.

    Interesting fact: Randy Linden, the programmer also did titles such as Dragon’s Lair for the Amiga with it’s infamous “extreme long track” protection.

    Funnily enough, despite the fact I’ve had a PS2 for roughly a decade, there are some PS1 games that I find play better emulated than on real hardware. Wipeout 3 for instance is probably one of the extremely few PS1 games with widescreen support, so running it on a modern emulator on my 1920×1080 23″ monitor… oh yeah! : D

  3. There was a dreamcast verison.

    From 1 to 10, LGR, which point will you give it, 10 being the best ?
